Marathon Relay event is part of the MK Marathon Weekend

BMI Saxopn Clinic sponsor the Milton Keynes Marathon Relay event 2016

The MK Marathon Relay is sponsored by BMI The Saxon Clinic.

The Marathon Relay runs alongside the Milton Keynes Marathon event, pitting teams of four runners (adults only 17+) against each other, each competitor running a leg of 6.2, 6.9, 6.9 and 6.2 miles.

The relay event is open to businesses, charities, clubs or even groups of friends and is characterised by a strong element of friendly competition as teams compete to be seen as the fittest or the fastest. These titles represent not only an enviable PR title, but also bragging rights that last for a full year.

This opportunity does not come around every day and is something not to be missed. Teams either take it in turns to drive or nominate a team driver. Full instructions and maps will be sent to each team before race day. Each team is expected to move around the course in one vehicle either with a dedicated team driver or by sharing the driving.

Race Day: Bank Holiday Monday 6th May 2019

Start time: With the full Marathon @ 10:00am

Prizes: Trophies for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Teams (based on gun time)

Course Record: 4 x £100 prize fund for the fastest relay team who can beat the current course record.

Please note all competition times will be based on your Gun time and not your Chip time.

Team Entry: You will nominate a Team Captain who organises the initial entry “Relay Team Captain” and payment of the team entry fee. They will need to create a password and give this to the other team members so they can register under “Relay Team Entrant”. Team members can transfer their place to another runner up until 31/3/19. Changes after the deadline will need to be made on race day. If you enter more than one team then each team will need a different Team Captain and unique email address.
